"Airbus salutes SES's ambitions regarding innovation and responsiveness in a rapidly changing market and we acknowledge their strong support for all-electric satellite technology", said Nicolas Chamussy, Head of Space Systems. That engine is a monster.

The latest rocket features numerous upgrades compared to its predecessor, including stronger landing legs, better landing control and improved reusability.

After operational missions with the crewed Dragon capsule were underway for NASA, SpaceX had planned to launch the private tourist moon mission.

SpaceX has landed these boosters 25 times, and reflown them on a dozen occasions.

Space X has delayed the launch of Falcon 9 from the scheduled date to June 4 due to further testing requirements needed towards the rocket's departure and success.
